Pervy Statuary At The Dog Park

Statue at Herman Frank's ParkThis is a picture of a statue at Herman Frank’s Park in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Am I the only one who looks at that statue and sees a man getting a little too close to a child? Why is he straddling the boy?

Mike says I’m nuts for thinking that this statue is pervy. Am I? Am I the pervert for thinking that statue is sick and wrong? To me, it doesn’t really look like an endearing portrayal of baseball, even if the bat hadn’t been broken off years ago. To me, it looks like a recruitment poster for pedophiles.

What do you think?



  1. I’ve coached youth baseball for many years. When you teach a boy how to bat you bend down over the boy so you can have a line of sight to the picher that is the same as the boy.

  2. Please take this entry down — you are embarrassing yourself. There is nothing wrong with adults getting close to children in a non-sexual way, and I can think of nothing less sexual than teaching a kid how to hit a baseball.
